3 CQI Supports the CD Mission Statement To partner with families, communities and government to protect children from abuse and neglect and assure safety, permanency and well being for Missouri’s children.

4 CQI Supports our Guiding Principles Protection Permanency Partnership Practice Prevention Professionalism

5 CQI Philosophy A process by which all staff look at the agency as a whole and develop plans for improvement CQI is intended to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of services provided CQI will help us become a “Learning Organization” and assists us in meeting the G2 Accreditation Standard

6 Components of the CQI System Staff Surveys Peer Record Reviews (PRR) Program Development Reviews (PDR) Outcome Reports Management Reports CQI Process Consumer Surveys Grievance Data

7 Outcome Reports 20 Critical Outcome Measures across all program lines each fitting into the domains of safety and permanency Reported quarterly on the intranet at http://dssweb/cs/outcomes/index.htm http://dssweb/cs/outcomes/index.htm Used to track progress in the Program Improvement Plan (PIP) Quantitative data derived from information staff enter in our data systems

8 Monthly Management Reports (Pink Books) Monthly publication available on the intranet regarding: - CA/N - FCS - FCOOHC - IIHS

9 Peer Record Reviews Peer to Peer Review which ensures essential service components exist in the record Intended to be supportive in nature, findings are to be shared with staff Worker gains new perspective and reviewer’s knowledge and skills are enhanced 10% of CA/N, FCS, and FCOOHC cases are reviewed

10 Consumer Grievance Data Structured so service delivery issues can be addressed at the most local level possible Allows families the opportunity to express concerns about dissatisfaction with agency action or behaviors Aggregate grievance information should be reviewed during CQI meetings

11 Practice Development Reviews (PDRs) Used to examine outcomes for individual children and families and the service system as a whole Combination of qualitative and quantitative data Very small sample – 12 to 24 cases Frequency yet to be determined

12 Consumer Surveys Random sample of Surveys generated from Research and Evaluation and sent to : Active youth in care Adults served in active FCS Adults served in IIS Adults recently involved in CA/N report Active Foster/Relative care providers

13 The Survey of Organizational Excellence Survey of all staff conducted annually Allows detailed (circuit and state level) organizational information to be collected Results posted on intranet for use in CQI meetings Response rate has risen from 18% in 2002 to 70% in 2005

14 CQI Meetings Underlying Principles Purpose Agendas Team Roles Meeting Focus

15 Underlying Assumptions of CQI The CQI process involves multiple levels of team meetings Every person is part of a CQI Team Each team sends one representative to the next level meeting All CQI meetings and team members are of equal importance 90% of the issues are resolved at the level that first identified the issue 1st Level 2nd Level 3rd Level State

16 Purpose of CQI Meetings Opportunity create solutions for problems Creative action planning with colleagues Innovative implementation of staff ideas Starting where we really are (honestly) and building on it Taking full advantage of opportunity to be creative and achieve the mission Non-Purpose of CQI Meetings Gripe session Social Hour Passing the buck for solving problems to someone else Using the time to simply “bash” current data or people “This is just another passing fad – I’ll wait it out and it will go away”
